Very relaxing week after a busy Christmas. Just what we needed. Lovely walks straight from the door and enoyed a few windy walks on the beaches. Our 3 year old loved all the different games and books a lovely addition. Thanks, hope to visit again when the weather is brighter and days are longer.

We can't think of a better place to hunker down during Storm Dennis! Our favourite place was Gibrlater Place. Great beach plenty of wild life (even saw a fox) and a good cafe.

What a beautiful place The Stables is! Such a comfortable and well equipped place to stay in the area! The weather didn't dampen our stay and there's lots to do in the area! We will definitely be back :-) Thank you! x

Just a quick line to say thank you for your help in the run up to our recent stay at Owl Cottage, and for your hospitality and friendly attention while we were staying there. We had a lovely time, which was such an antidote to recent times, locked inside a house in a town. This is one of my favourite parts of my home county, but the first time I have brought my daughter and husband. They have also fallen in love with the peace, tranquility and beaches, and I think I have convinced my husband to relocate, which is no mean feat, and is also down to our lovely stay in Owl Cottage. Our daughter enjoyed the cows and regular visits from Pluto, and now knows that all Lincolnshire is not flat - just the bit where Mum is from!! As for me, my early memories of your area at the foot of the Wolds were not let down by modern reality. I feel homesick sitting here writing this. Our second week in Louth because you were full wasn’t a patch on our first. We enjoyed the foodie delights, and especially Baci & Co. but drove back to the coast around Alford most days, or up between Donna Nook and Theddlethorpe. Collected samphire and had it in a dish last night. I haven’t done that since the 1970s!! Owl Cottage was very comfortable, and deceptively spacious. The kitchen was very well equipped, beds comfortable etc, but the winner is the views and sounds of nature from the back door and back bedroom, which are stupendous. At night, you have your own star scape. Please feel free to use any of my comments on your website. I couldn’t see anywhere there to do a review. We give Owl Cottage 10 out of 10 stars! We look forward to coming back again and soon. Thank you again.

Lovely cottage with lots of walks especially Beach at Anderby Creek and just footpaths around the farm. Ross had a quiet time. No comments on where to eat out as ate in all the time.

Great holiday in great cottage! Walks straight from the door, beach at Mablethorpe is fab for dogs too! Can recommend 2 cheese toastie at the cafe opposite the car park (only one there). Horncastle is a nice visit and recommend The Big Chair shop for home shopping or just browsing...I shopped. Food - recommend The Railway Tarvern - 4 miles. Very good pub food, very dog friendly and lovely owners, extremely Covid sorted!! Phone number 01507 480676. Also does takeaways, but if you go tell Landlord Sapphire the white Husky sent you and recommends the chocolate lumpy bumpy :-)

We have had a wonderful week at The Stables. The house has been beautifully done and we loved the location on the farm with great walks and wildlife all around. What a treat to see a Barn Owl! Paul, Barbara and Pluto were good hosts. It was our first trip to Lincolnshire and I'm sure we will be back - loads of places to visit and huge beaches to play on!

We have had a wonderful relaxing week at The Stables and exploring the local countryside.  The Stables is very comfortable and Paul and family have thought of everything you could possibly need.  We enjoyed trips to the coast, walks around the farmland and using the fireput! We'd love to return one day!

Have had a lovely relaxing weekend away from the hustle and bustle.  Beautiful design and really comfortable within all the facilities we needed for a family and dog.  Had some great local dog walks and will recommend to our family and friends.  Thanks Paul, Barbara and family.

Another lovely stay - getting to be a habit. Very lucky with the weather. So peaceful and quiet. A good base for us to catch up with family who live in Spilsby and Horncastle.

Thanks for a great week in a lovely cottage. We have had super walks, some directly from the cottage. Good to explore a region so different from our home.

Absolutely lovely accommodation. We were welcomed with some Lincolnshire plum bread and milk. Plum bread really lovely toasted only complaint was the rain. Visited The Willoughby Arms, Willoughby - nice food. The Royal Oak very pretty. You drive through a ford. Food good. Would not recommend the Durham Ox rude girl, said no tables for over an hour even though only 2 couples were there. Visited Lincoln, Skegness, Mablethorpe. Lincoln good for shopping, Stokes Coffee shop lovely, nice sandy beach for Barney to run on at Mablethorpe. Paul very helpful. We would definitely recommend The Stables.

The Adventures of Roxy Prog Rock Dod, check her out on Facebook!  Thank you for a lovely stay. Lovely, helpful hosts who bent over backwards to make our stay so as pleasuable as possible. Paul even arranged for birdscarers not to go off as as frequently as our Roxy dog has aversion to fireworks, guns and bird scarers. Sutton-on-sea is a great place for the dog to run around. We also enjoyed a ride on the LWR which Roxy loved (she loves train rides). We enjoyed an afternoon on the beach and visiting the North Sea Observatory - lovely lunch here too! The Pig and Whistle pub at Healing Manor hotel is top quality come dog friendly and even have a doggy menu - Roxy enjoyed the chicken casserole. Overall a lovely relaxing stay. Thank you Paul and family for making us feel so welcome.

A beautifully finsihed home with all the comforts needed to make our stay relaxing. After two months of constant travel, this was a haven to us. Abi and Paul's generous hospitality made our rainy afternoon memorable :-) The Stables has set the standards for all our future farm stays. Thank you!

Cottage really has the wow factor when you walk in. Very well equipped. Friendly but unobtrusive owners. Had a really lovely stay. Recommend The Railway Tarvern for an evening meal. Lots to see and do. Thank you.
